Manitou has expanded the production teams for its broadest equipment ranges by hiring two new managers.
Aaron Haynes joins the company as its new global product manager for skid and track loaders, while Ben Williams has been hired as the company’s North American product marketing manager for industrial and rough terrain forklifts.
Philippe Bisson, Manitou’s global product line manager for construction equipment, said, “Our product management team at Manitou Group is critical to ensuring that innovation stays at the forefront of product development.” He continued, “The knowledge and ambition that Aaron and Ben bring to the organization strengthens our initiatives to develop and bring to market products that truly support the needs of our customers.”
Haynes, who previously worked as a product marketing manager for JLG Industries, will be responsible for aligning the company’s Manitou, Gehl and Mustang skid and track loader offering with worldwide market demands.
As product marketing manager for industrial and rough terrain forklifts, Williams will collaborate with the marketing, product development, engineering and sales teams to develop products that meet the market demand in North America. The former EnSync Energy Systems production manager will work directly with Manitou’s customers to research new product opportunities.
